Wearing Your Ethics

New York City Vegetarian Food Festival

May 8, 2016

 

The New York City Vegetarian Food Festival is one of the largest vegan conferences in the world. Here is more information about this upcoming talk. "Wearing Your Ethics:  bridging the gap between diet and fashion" will address the disconnect between what people eat and what people wear. 

Description: What is the difference between eating meat and wearing leather? Are vegetarians allowed to wear wool or down? What about silk, or beeswax?Now more than ever before, ethical fashion is enabling vegetarians to wear their ethics on their sleeves. Advances in animal-free technologies, synthetic materials, and cruelty-free products are changing how people buy. This talk will arm you with a better understanding of your options as an ethical consumer, and leave you empowered to vote every day with your wallet for a cruelty-free world.

Beyond Food | Vegan Fashion

New Hampshire Vegetarian Food Festival

May 7, 2016

 

I will be giving two talks at the upcoming The New Hampshire Vegetarian Food Festival on these topics:

Beyond Food: Veganism is mostly associated with diet. But there are many other things that have animal products other than just food. Learn how the car you drive, the electronics you use, and the house you live in can be part of your path to a cruelty-free life.
